Random notes from a former confirmed spinster who still lives with cats. Some things never change. Oh, and I quilt, hike, and bake on occasion.

Marmots, foxes, and frost - oh my!
Skyline Trail at Paradise.
Yesterday's hike was at Paradise on the Skyline Trail at Mt. Rainier. It was a chilly day - probably about 40 degrees the whole time, but it wasn't raining or snowing and that is pretty amazing for October on the mountain. We were greeted in the parking lot by a fox who was probably used to getting handouts, but failed to persuade us and left empty handed. The hike was gorgeous and we saw lots of fall color and three marmots. I have a feeling my next hike will be much wetter.
